Frequently asked questions
How much it cost to post my jobs on Prospect?
How do I post my jobs to the job board?
Guess what? You never have to re-post a single job to this site. Prospect’s job board is powered by an aggregation software that pulls your job listings directly from your existing career page, wherever it is on the internet.
Keep your career page up to date and we will do the rest.

Why is Prospect a non-profit organization?
The hiring market is dominated by job board solutions that make money on a pay-per-post model. Companies must choose where to promote their open roles and, as a result, job postings end up spread across the internet. This makes it difficult for great talent to find the various opportunities available to them and apply for the right gig.
Canada’s innovation economy is facing a massive talent shortage. We have a rapidly growing demand for workers and not enough talent to fill the gaps, which is often forcing early-stage companies to scale back when they should be scaling up.
Prospect’s mission is to increase accessibility between Canadian tech startups and the world’s skilled workers, by centralizing all of the opportunities in one place.
For Job Seekers
Is Prospect free for job seekers?
How do I apply for a job that’s listed on Prospect?
Is it possible to switch languages on the job board?
I clicked on a job but it no longer exists. Why did this happen?
Prospect’s job board is powered by an aggregator that regularly scrapes websites for new information. The aggregator updates and adds new info on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis based on the type of system (or code) a company uses to power the career page.
Old listings on pages scraped less frequently may take a few days to come down. We apologize for the inconvenience, especially if you got excited about the role!
Can I save my filtered search for later?
There’s no feature for saving a search within the job board. However, we have a quick trick to solve this problem!
If you’ve been using the filters to narrow down your search, the website link or URL generated from your search will remain the same.
To make it work, plug in all your search criteria, such as the location, job function, or company size, and generate the results. Once you’ve got your requirements in place, copy the URL link in your browser bar and save it as a bookmark. By using this custom URL, you can return to your search anytime you’d like!
